  • Forever Saint Seiya!
    Even though it only reached 2 seasons as in anime. I still thought The Lost Canvas was a really awesome prequel to it's original 1986 series "Saint Seiya" & imo --- felt like it topped Omega, as well. Having read the manga after they stopped airing episodes, & for anyone that's into reading manga like myself then you should definitely read through the rest.

    What makes ...

  • The Saint Seiya we deserved
    Lets get it out there guys: It's an offshoot, and maybe yeah reusing Hades may haven't been original, but it worked tremendously. This anime has great fighting, and itself has its own ideals. Every character deserved his part, and had amazing development. The plot took its time, but not making needless clutter. The heroes (unlike Omega) stuck to one principle, and lived by it. It is also ...

  • great storyline they should have extended it
    I like how the story uses a greek goddess and then using names from astrology but Hades side with specters was a nice twist and kept the fights interesting...The fight with Pisces was something to build the story and tension. But if you like a interesting, fun anime with magic and some historical identities this anime is for you

    Why isn't there more of this?
    I just can't understand why this series ended when Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas is better than the original one and Saint Seiya Omega

    This story plot is a lot less cheesy and the graphics are MUCH better than the others

  • pretty good but sad that it ends early
    all things considered it was pretty good, i use to watch saint seiya (well what little they dubbed in america way way back in the day :/ ) and it was pretty awesome to see another part of the story from that universe brought to life with the newer animation we have now. all in all i think it was visually stunning. a little slow a parts. heart breaking at certain moments depending on who your ...

    Hmm, to be completely honest
    Lost Canvas has to be on of the most overrated animes of all time. Its okay. but not a masterpiece like most of their fans make it out to be. I felt like i was watching naruto instead of SS. 1.5/5 stars.

    PLEASE FINISH THIS SERIES.
    Now I'm no Saint Seiya buff in terms of the original but I've watched it as a kid and kept up with the series. I actually watched most of Saint Seiya Omega before TLC and Omega pales in comparison. Visually TLC is rich and refreshing, character development is somewhat strong and it feels direct. You get introduced to the plot early on and are thrown "into the fire" so to speak from the get go, ...

    Pretty Good, but Inconsistencies Keep it From Being Great.
    I enjoy the overall plot and the emotional over/undertones involved, but the episode by episode is lost on me. Often Hades will send a single powerful avatar to attack the Saints, and despite being able to (with apparent ease) send reinforcements to overwhelm and outnumber the enemy, the Saints rarely do. In individual fights, bluster often causes someone to lose what would otherwise seem to be a ...
